The outcome of 53 cases expectantly managed with premature rupture of membranes (PROM) before fetal viability (16 to 25 weeks) was retrospectively reviewed. Forty-one percent of patients developed amnionitis, four had prolonged hospital stays (longer than seven days), and one each had sepsis and pelvic thrombophlebitis. Twenty-two mothers (41%) had no complications. No serious long-term maternal sequelae were noted. Eighteen patients were delivered after 26 weeks, and there were 13 surviving neonates with birth weights ranging from 740 to 2170 g.
